Surrealist pop artist Felix and the Future can’t easily be placed in one particular box. But, if he was, it would be a colorfully creative and stylish one. Brooklyn-based Felix III - aka Felix and the Future - is a self-taught pianist, singer, songwriter and producer who is equal parts intergalactic electro-pop troubadour and Dali-esque visual artist whose elaborate, eye-popping fashion designs, live costume changes and stunning Fantasyland music videos are as mind-blowing as his theatrical art-pop music. A dramatic singer-songwriter producing his own unique blend of dazzling electro-dance music and eclectic cosmic ballads, his emotive vocals and thought-provoking, dreamscape lyrics are backed by haunting piano melodies and synthesizer wizardry.
Felix creates highly-imaginative electronic baroque pop music that draws upon and brings to mind classic art rockers such as Kate Bush and David Bowie, while also remaining firmly fixed in the present - and future (hence the name) - residing in the same proximity of highly-talented Electro-Pop Indietronica fashionistas like Patrick Wolf and Diamond Rings.
He released his debut self-titled EP in 2011, which gained significant indie blog buzz as well as a feature in Time Out New York magazine. He has since toured the East Coast and Northern Europe, receiving praise for his elaborate live performances that integrate his magical stage persona infused with manic energy and visually stunning future-fantasy costume changes (including a much-discussed Merman piece de resistance).
Felix’s three self-produced music videos (“Steady Hum Drum”, "Apollonia" and “Family Tree”) have also been met with acclaim and garnered plentiful YouTube fan love with their vibrant color schemes and flamboyant costumes, filmed on location in various exotic destinations including Costa Rica and Mexico. On the fashion front, Felix continues to turn heads with his handmade creations and quirky chromatic ensembles.
